“Crowell is such an iconic songwriter whose influence extends way beyond country music,” said Farm and Fun Time show host and Radio Bristol Program Director Kris Truelsen. “Combine that with the virtuosic talents of Ickes and Hensley and you’ve got a really powerful combination fans won’t want to miss.”
